After many months of preparation, Vape Live is back, this time, from the USA (virtually)!
Education plays a huge role at Vape Live, so it’s been great to once again bring a host of speakers from both sides of the Atlantic to talk all things vaping and tobacco harm reduction.
Introduction to VOXPO and Vape Live
The day opened with a spirited rendition of the Star-Spangled Banner from Innevape’s patriotic CEO, Jeff Connell.
You’ll be seeing (and hearing!) plenty of Jeff over the weekend, so stay tuned for more.
Vapouround editor Patrick Griffin’s passionate intro set the tone for the days ahead, touching on the huge potential of vaping and the challenges the industry continues to face.
Health scares such as last year’s EVALI ‘epidemic’ have turned the public against vaping, especially in the US.
The tragedy here, Patrick explained, is that smokers are being put off a less-harmful alternative to toxic, combustible tobacco.
Patrick hopes Vape Live will be the catalyst for smokers to make the switch to vaping for good.
“People in this industry genuinely all share one thing: they love to talk about their journey from smoking to vaping and they love to tell how e-cigarettes and how this industry can help people’s lives for the better.
“We really hope that people leave after these three days more educated and more informed about vaping than they were when they entered.”
